In gaining a greater understanding on your hearing, you can adapt to changes in your environment and make more effective choices on the hearing solutions available at your Brockville hearing clinic. Our team at Thousand Islands Hearing has decades of experience within this area of healthcare, and within this latest post, we’ll explore the unique sounds each ear hears.
The Brain and Hearing
All sound we hear are organized by our brain to determine the location, volume and pitch of the sound. The brain then sends the signaling information to the ears, where the information then translates into the sound that you hear. Since your brain is separated into two hemispheres: the right and the left, your hearing is also, in some ways, separated between your right ear and left ear. Our left ear is connected to our left side of the brain, which decodes information on what we’re hearing. The left side of the brain tells us what we’re hearing and the contextual environment. The right side of the brain serves a different function. It informs us of the meaning behind what’s said and the tone. This enables us to engage in conversation and respond to verbal cues when we notice someone is upset by the tone of their voice. This information is being processed so quickly when don’t know it’s taking place. It’s an occurrence that we rely on throughout our everyday lives, and one that we don’t’ fully understand.
The Role of Hearing Aids
When you experience a problem with one or both of your ears, hearing aids can provide a resolution. Wearing a hearing aid from a local clinic can help, for example, to balance the sounds that you’re hearing. It can also help to increase the pitch and volume of the audio within your room, allowing you to gain a greater understanding on the conversation. It’s a tool that is helping thousands of people build their social awareness and achieve comfort at work and at work.
